(1) All data fields printed on driver's licenses and identification cards issued by the State, individual serial numbers of the card, and SSN;
(2) A record of the full legal name and recorded name established under § 37.11(c)(2) as applicable, without truncation;
(3) All additional data fields included in the MRZ but not printed on the driver's license or identification card; and
(4) Motor vehicle driver's histories, including motor vehicle violations, suspensions, and points on driver's licenses.

§ 30301 - Definitions
Title 6 published on 2014-01-01
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 6 CFR Part 37 after this date.
Pursuant to REAL ID regulations, beginning December 1, 2014, federal agencies may not accept State-issued driver's licenses or identification cards for official purposes from individuals born after December 1, 1964, unless the license or card is REAL ID-compliant and was issued by a compliant State as determined by DHS. Also, beginning December 1, 2017, federal agencies may not accept driver's licenses or identification cards for official purposes from any individual unless the card is REAL ID-compliant and was issued by a compliant State as determined by DHS. This final rule changes both document enrollment dates to October 1, 2020. Nothing in this rule affects the prohibition against federal agencies accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards issued by noncompliant States, pursuant to the REAL ID Act and in accordance to the phased enforcement schedule.
